If you’re tired of sitting around waiting for the next iteration of Fortnite, well, wait no longer! The team at Epic Games just dropped a 2.5GB update to their wildly popular arena battler and fan reviews are already starting to pile in and we couldn’t be more excited. Ever since its launch, Fortnite has been fighting to separate itself from the similar-but-different super-success that is PUBG and we feel like the team might have inched just a little bit closer to that goal.
Fortnite’s Season 3 Update hit the PC, PS4 and XB1 on February 23rd, 2018 by way of a 2.5GB patch. The 3.0.0 patch adds Season 3 to the game while changing a few core components of the title. Battle Royale is now running at a smooth 60 FPS on consoles and the game looks better than ever as a result. You don’t have to have the Xbox 1 X or the PS4 in order to enjoy this new framerate. If you still like 30 FPS as a setting, you can go into your own private settings and change it back.
For Battle Pass owners, the game now has improved building modes in Save the World and for the Battle Royale players-only, the building has been modified and improved. There are going to be some bumps in the road to get used to the new settings but we feel like gamers will be quick to adapt. Among the other updates are John Wick inspired outfits, superhero-inspired outfits, and an aesthetic overhaul that really leans into Asian stylings. Additionally, Epic Games has released the Hand Cannon weapon which is, probably, one of the most entertaining single-handed weapons in the entire game. If you have been looking for a reason to boot Fortnite back up, wait no longer and get on your Xbox!
